Business Law Solutions For Every Business

Whether you run a small family business or a large corporation, a partnership, sole proprietorship, limited liability corporation or nonprofit organization, you should have a relationship with an attorney as there will be times that you will need sound legal counseling for your business.  Mistakes can be costly and relying on ‘self-help’ legal guides is not a suitable replacement for an educated and experienced lawyer.

At O'Donnell, Weiss & Mattei, P.C., our team of business lawyers will guide you through business formation, drafting and negotiation of contracts and agreements, meeting the formal obligations for a business entity, and many other business matters. We consider ourselves part of your “business team” and represent the business interests of many companies in the Tricounty area and beyond.

Setting Your Business Up For Success

Establishing a new business venture is a critical time frame for starting off on the right foot. There are many key decisions during the early stages that can shape your business for success and avoid costly business disputes down the road. Working with a skilled business lawyer is essential for addressing considerations around business formation and organization such as:

  • Creating a business plan to solidify your vision
  • Choosing an appropriate business entity, whether that be a limited partnership (LP), limited liability partnership (LLP), limited liability company (LLC), corporation (S corp or C corp) or another type of business organization
  • Establishing corporate governance through foundational documents such as certificate of organization, articles of incorporation, partnership agreements and bylaws
  • Choosing a location, whether that means leasing office space, buying commercial real estate or setting up shop from home, and exploring the legal ramifications of each option
  • Pursuing financing and strategizing the right approach for funding the business

Our attorneys can help you make strategic decisions in all of these areas, laying the groundwork for a thriving enterprise.

Finally, there may come a time when you decide to sell or transition your company. In a situation like this, it’s critical to have an experienced business lawyer on your team to negotiate the agreement of sale and related documents.

Extensive Experience In Contract Law And Business Disputes

As a business owner or leader, navigating contractual issues is something you will likely encounter throughout the life of your business. Contracts are at the core of all types of business ventures, from startups to family-run businesses and well-established enterprises.

We can help you put solid contracts into place, including:

  • Employment contracts
  • Purchase contracts/invoices/terms and conditions
  • Service and vendor contracts
  • Real estate contracts and leases
  • Equipment leases
  • Business loan and financing agreements
  • Noncompete agreements
  • Nondisclosure agreements
  • Release of liability provisions

Contracts are the lifeblood of your business operations. They define relationships, outline expectations, and protect your interests.  We understand that a business dispute can cost our clients a significant amount of time, money and energy, which is why our lawyers work tirelessly at drafting, reviewing, and negotiating contracts to align with your business goals and mitigate the risk of costly contract disputes that could expose you to business litigation.   We can also review contracts and address breach of contract claims that may arise throughout the course of business operations.
